Crankcase blow-by is produced when combustion gases under high pressure are blown past the piston rings into the crankcase. Laden with oil, these gases must be allowed to exit the engine to prevent pressure build-up and seal failure. Blow-by oil mist can also coat engine after-coolers and turbochargers, which reduces cooling capacity and engine efficiency.
Designed for use in Racor CCV system filter housings (1500, 4500, 6000, 8000, 12000), CCV replacement elements utilize depth-loading, micro-glass, fiber coalescing Vaporbloc™ media to remove oil contamination from engine bypass gases before they damage critical engine components and surrounding equipment. The replacement filters offer exceptional oil mist separation and are capable of coalescing vapor and contaminants down to 0.3 microns. The resulting filtered and coalesced oil is held in a hose line with a check valve, until it is released to the oil pan via a hose connection.
